A short film by Georges Méliès, the director probably best known for A Trip to the Moon, was recently discovered in France after having been lost for over a century. The film, Cleopatra, was one of over five hundred he made in his lifetime, and like many of them, it was thought to have been lost forever. Méliès was a pioneering figure in film and is still admired today, one example being Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' updated version of A Trip to the Moon for the Smashing Pumpkins' Tonight, Tonight video in 1996.
